Save the Date: Rapid Re-Housing Institute (RRHI)  The SSVF Program Office, with the support of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the U.S. Interagency Council on Homelessness and other federal and national partners, is pleased to announce a Save the Date for the second annual Rapid Re-Housing (RRH) Institutes. These events are specifically targeted to RRH practitioners and crisis response system planners!

The VA, in close partnership with its partners and technical assistance providers, and other national partners, are currently planning the two Rapid Rehousing Institutes for the fall of 2018 (both events will be identical in content). These events, which will be different in format and content from the 2017 events, will bring together RRH practitioners and planners from around the country for an intensive, 1.5-day long training and conference event focused various topics and creative solutions to rapid rehousing and rapid resolution (diversion and rapid exit) practices.

 SSVF grantees will spend an extra half day beyond their CoC partners, making this a full two-day event for grantees. A preliminary agenda will be released later in the summer.

Due to space limitations, there will be a limit to the number of individual attendees per SSVF Grantee. The Program Office will provide instructions on who should attend from each organization when registration opens.

Site dates and locations have been confirmed:

•         East Coast Rapid Rehousing Institute: October 2 - October 3, 2018 Miami, FL

•         West Coast Rapid Rehousing Institute: October 16 - October 17, 2018 San Diego, CA

We will continue to provide information as registration and travel logistics come into focus. In the meantime, questions related to these events can be sent to the SSVF program’s technical assistance address at

This event is being sponsored by the VA, with support from HUD and USICH, and the primary SSVF TA partners, The Technical Assistance Collaborative and Abt Associates.

Resource: Information on Registering to Vote at


The SSVF Program Office would like to share a resource that SSVF providers may utilize to assist Veterans in registering to vote.  Registration deadlines for November elections are approaching in many states and is a helpful website with voter resources, including basic steps on how to vote, a guide for new voters, and information on where and how to register.



Thank You,
